The War News
The new leader of the War Lords, The War Ed, delivered his first speech as leader today, winning muted and embarassed applause when he said that “we have to face up to the fact that, in retrospect, the War Games were probably, well, er… perhaps, maybe, not all that totally a good idea… umm, sort of?”
His brother, The War Dave, looked all pouty and crosspatch and was seen to ask the senior War Politician sat next to him, The War Woman, why she was clapping when she voted for the War Games. “I’m clapping because I don’t want the Time Lords to dematerialise me,” she said, earning herself a curled lip and sneering glare from The War Dave.
Later today, The War Dave announced that he would be “stepping back from frontline War Politics” (apparently unconscious of the queasy irony of suggesting that he’d ever been on the “frontline” of anything, unlike loads of ordinary people that he helped send to kill and die) “to concentrate on sitting in the corner with my arms folded, sulking.”
